WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY PHILOSOPHY?
We aim to be the best at what we do and provide services that will benefit patients from both clinical and beauty standpoints.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY
Concerned with discoloration and multiple cavities, this 50-year-old patient needed a smile makeover. “We were able to restore the health and beauty of her smile with porcelain veneers,” Dr. Sadati says.
HOW DO YOU ALLEVIATE DENTAL FEAR?
Dental fear most often begins with a bad experience. To alleviate anxiety, we treat patients as we would our closest friends or family members. New patients meet with me personally in our office consultation suite where examination chairs and dental tools are far from sight. Never rushing appointments or pushing treatments, it is obvious our office holds patient comfort as the highest of priorities.
WHAT DID YOU DO TO ACHIEVE ACCREDITED FELLOWSHIP STATUS FROM THE AACD?
There’s a reason fewer than 50 dentists in the world have attained this status. For AACD accreditation, I submitted the required five clinical cases (of various dental cosmetic disciplines) and passed both an oral and a written examination. Then to achieve accredited fellow status, I presented an additional 50 clinical cases. In addition to the demonstration of both my clinical and aesthetic skills, achieving the fellowship required a great deal of self-discipline and willpower.
KNOWING NO BOUNDS
For Dr. Sadati, dentistry extends far beyond the examination chair. Aside from restoring smiles, the world renowned dentist advocates education as both a teacher and student. Dr. Sadati shares his extensive experience with fellow dentists as an adjunct professor for NOVA Southeastern University’s Post-Graduate Operative department. He hopes to not only teach these dentists the very best techniques, but to also view life as an endless pursuit of knowledge. Honoring this philosophy, Dr. Sadati often enrolls in continuing education. “We should never believe we simply know it all,” he explains. “The more I do, the better I become.”
“A SMILE IS A WINDOW TO COUNTLESS OPPORTUNITIES”
About Sam S. Sadati, DDS, FAACD, FAGD
“EXCEPTIONALLY CREDENTIALED” IS ONLY ONE OF MANY WAYS TO DESCRIBE DR. SAM S. SADATI. AS ONE OF 46 DENTISTS IN THE AACD TO HOLD THE HONORARY DISTINCTION OF ACCREDITED FELLOW FROM THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF COSMETIC DENTISTRY, DR. SADATI IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF HIS FIELD. IT IS HIS PATIENTS, HOWEVER, THAT DRIVE HIS DESIRE TO MAINTAIN LEADERSHIP STATUS IN THE INDUSTRY. “WE WANTED TO MAKE A DENTAL VISIT SOMETHING PATIENTS COULD LOOK FORWARD TO,” DR. SADATI SAYS. LUCKILY FOR HIS PATIENTS, HE HAS ACCOMPLISHED JUST THAT.
WHAT SHOULD PATIENTS LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A DENTIST?
A great dentist is one that sees himself as doctor, artist and student. While any dentist can legally perform procedures, the best dentists will have top credentials, appreciation for this artistry and a continuous desire for further education.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A DENTIST?
Pursuing a career that would challenge my technical ability as well as my creative talent was a requirement for me. The best of both worlds came together when I discovered dentistry, a profession demanding both scientific skill and inventive thinking. I consider myself lucky to be doing what I believe I was called to do.
HOW DO YOU GIVE BACK?
Selected as examiner and mentor for the AACD, I assist dentists looking to advance in skill and training. I also restore the smiles of domestic violence victims through the Give Back a Smile Foundation, which I find to be the most rewarding. With each smile transformed, I am reminded of why I chose this profession.
